Three projects made from one piece of tie dye fabric.

Items Needed:


Glue tie dye fabric to mount board and die cut required shapes or neatly cut scraps.

Instruction Image #1

For ATC and small gift tag:
Apply black modeling paste through stencil and leave to dry.

Instruction Image #2

Use a permanent ink, stamp image onto the fabric as required. Always give a quick blast of your heat gun to stop the ink bleeding.

Instruction Image #3

Stamp onto the dry modeling paste using Chalky Finish - gives very crisp results every time! Always brush a little of the chalky paint out on a craft sheet, keeping it fairly thin. Tap the stamp lightly into the paint a couple of times and then apply. Clean stamp immediately!

Using the same technique with Media Fluid Acrylics, stamp marks onto the fabric to represent aging.

Make a quite using a vintage label machine.

For the Gift Label:

For the Wall Plaque:
Cut a piece of foam board to the size required – this one is cut approximately two cms larger than the die cut stamp shape. Adhere chipboard shapes. Roughen the edges of the foam board with a craft knife to give the final piece a worn look.

Paint everything with two coats of the Dark Grey Value 3. Remember to paint the sides of the piece.

Instruction Image #11

Create a rust finish using your favorite method. I used an Andy Skinner technique. The finished project has two little rusty wire loops to hang it from.

Add stenciled details using Titan Buff Media Fluid Acrylic.

Age the stenciled images with some Quinacridone Gold and Carbon Black applied neat to the Titan Buff.
